Hansel and Gretel head into the forest in search of food—but they almost end up as tasty treats themselves when they start nibbling on the deliciously edible house of a very nasty witch!
Look for a happy ending and “larger-than-life puppets that steal the show in a fantasyland production that’s all sugar and spice.”—Los Angeles Times
With his vocal prowess and charisma, countertenor Kangmin Justin Kim “is an utter sensation” (Süddeutsche Zeitung); emerging star Elena Villalón has won scores of prestigious competitions; and Patricia Racette is one of today’s most riveting singing actresses who’ll eat up the stage as both the Mother and the Witch!
“A fantasy world that audiences will be happy to join.”—Los Angeles Times
Music Director Emmanuel Villaume conducts this production from LA Opera.
